Capt Tim Myers:

I live in Lake Oswego, OR. I am a 30 year Navy Veteran, and I want to thank Applebees for the kindness they show each year to all our Veterans. The professionalism and sincere gratitude shown by the Applebees staff at the Lake oswego restaurant is always superb. To me, visiting Applebees is always a pleasure and on Veterans Day, I look at it as much more than a free meal. Thank you for thinking of all Veterans. You make all of us feel pride in our Service to this wonderful country. As we say in the Navy, “Bravo Zulu”, which means “Well Done”.

After two tours in Afghanistan & Iraq with 15 years service, a soldier needs help getting a service dog. The military will get him a dog, but Daryl needs to travel to the dog, train & fly back with the dog. This the VA will not cover. Looking for any help to get this soldier connected with his dog.
